Set on nearly a half acre of property on the edge of the Wissahickon Park, 729 Cornelia Place is a modern home in classic Chestnut Hill. Tucked into the tree line at the end of a secluded cul-de-sac, this unique home offers three stories of living with a modern, open floor plan and stunning lofted views of the Wissahickon Park. Designed by architect Fred L Bissinger in 2002, 729 Cornelia Place was oriented to offer multiple living and gathering spaces both inside and outside the home, to showcase the stunning natural surroundings year round. The circular front drive is flanked by mature plantings and bounded by a stone retaining wall, offering private off-street parking for 4 cars. The main floor of the home is large and open, with beautiful bamboo floors, a wood burning fireplace, dedicated dining area for 8+ seats, and an open kitchen with views to the park. Surrounded by windows, this main level has sliding glass doors that open up to the deck, offering space for grilling and outdoor dining. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, including a Thermador gas range for the serious cook, functional cabinet and pantry space, and a large island for casual eating and additional storage. Entering 729, you?ll discover a one of a kind wooden front door that was acquired from All Saints Church in Kent, England. This antiquity compliments an eye-catching stained glass window in the stairwell. A second side entrance provides a less formal entrance into the home through a mudroom complete with a half bath, 2 hall coat closets and main floor laundry. The second floor of the home is where you will find all three of the bedrooms, each with views of spring green. This floor has a full hall bathroom with shower and tub combination and a linen closet for overflow storage. French doors from the landing lead you to the main bedroom which is spacious and bright. Vaulted views from a wall of windows lend a birds-eye view to the entrance of the Valley Green. This bedroom has a walk in closet and ensuite bath with an oversized shower and a double vanity. The home?s lower level has a large family room with French doors closing it off from the rest of the space, making privacy easy if the room were to be used for overnight guests or converted into a second owners suite. A utility room, large storage room and a half bath round out this floor, with a bit of bonus space for a bar or smaller dining area in addition. Multiple sliding glass doors give walk out access to the large slate patio boasting a built in wood burning fire pit for the shoulder seasons. The outdoor spaces are seamlessly connected with steps up to the deck and down to the fenced in woodland below. Adjacent to the Wissahickon Park, the homes on Cornelia Place offer unparalleled foot access to Forbidden Drive, just minutes from SCH and the Philadelphia Cricket Club, and moments drive to all the Avenue has to offer. Offers due by 4pm on Tuesday May 24th.
